Royal Philips Electronics is announcing the release of its Model Based Segmentation (MBS) software, the latest version for Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT). The software is featuring an intuitive drag-and-drop interface that allows faster tumor contouring and delivery of radiation therapy.
Contouring of organs and anatomy can be time consuming. Model Based Segmentation (MBS) makes it easier.
From a library of pre-defined 3D organ structures models, you just drag and drop anatomical templates onto patient image data. MBS software then automatically adapts the shape to fit the patient’s organs. This reduces the time it takes to manually draw contours.
And your library grows as you add your own data. In addition to pre-defined models, you can create customized organ models based on your regional, demographic or clinical practice specialties. For one physician a contour of the heart may only include the ventricles, for another it may include all vessels.
Physician preferences are recorded and these customized organ models can be recalled time and again – significantly reducing contouring time.
IGRT workflow is enhanced with MBS software by allowing clinicians to easily propagate organs to alternate 4D datasets to determine the extent of the tumor movement within the patient. Based on the patient’s response, you can react quickly to modify the treatment plan.
